Summary: Spanning decades and cultures, here is the epic story of the forbidden passion of an American woman and a Chinese man and the tremendous obstacles they must overcome. In California of 1906, where it is a crime for them to even touch, Hope Newfield and Leong Po-yo fall desperately in love. Defying every taboo, this independent American woman and the aristocratic young man from Hankow, China decide to marry. But in the coming years, as they move from San Francisco to China and start to raise a family, their love is tested by prejudice, by revolution, by conflicting loyalties, and their own drastically different traditions. -- Rich with history and romance, this epic tale will appeal to the large audience that made The Joy Luck Club and The Thorn Birds international bestseller -- Echoing the cultural complexity of Liu's daring debut novel, Face (Warner, 1994), "Club Mountain" also contains the elements of an international romantic blockbuster and draws on the true story of Liu's grandparents' marriage, imbuing the novel with a vivid authenticity.
